East of Savannah

P. T. Bridgeport

About the Book

Savannah is a port, but the delta of the Savannah River separates the port from the sea.

Eighteen miles of beaches, islands, tidal marshes, and waterways stretch between the city and the ocean. Visitors to Savannah barely notice that land, but it is diverse and frequently beautiful. The photographs in these pages capture the moods, scenery, and some of the residents.

This is the city and delta in their most unexpected moments, largely unseen and frequently deserving observation.

About the Author and Photographer

Author, radio host, and photographer P. T. Bridgeport

P. T. Bridgeport is a photographer, calligrapher, and uncompensated curmudgeon.

A transplant from farther north, he resides east of Savannah with the elegant and accomplished Ms. Hamden Bridgeport and their noble companion Stink, and he still finds things that fascinate and delight him.

He hosts multiple shows on WRUU 107.5 FM, including When the Moon Sings on Saturday evenings at 5 p.m., Beyond the Liner Notes on Fridays at 11 a.m., followed by Listening to Literature during the lunch hour (the latter two with Leigh E. Rich).

He is the author of East of Savannah, a full-color photobook that captures the moods, scenery, and residents of the Savannah River delta, and The Moon and I Confer, a collection of his weekly radio “soapboxes” that speak to the human condition and the wondrous inanity of life.

He is a former president of the Savannah Art Association and a former member of the Greater Savannah International Alliance. He has exhibited his photography with the Savannah Art Association and in solo shows.

He was a trombonist early in life but went through a program and now lives spit-valve free.
